2020 BMW X1 vs Audi Q3

Finding the right luxury SUV doesn't have to be tricky, or stressful. Thanks to our dealership, we want to make sure that our customers are always well-informed with the best options on the market. Right now we want to focus on two of the top competitors: the 2020 Audi Q3 and the 2020 BMW X1. The Audi Q3 starts everything off with an impressive list of technology and advanced safety features, standard AWD, and a stylish and sporty interior and exterior. BMW tries to keep up with uncomfortable front seats, new wheel designs, an improved 8-speed automatic transmission, and decent cargo space. Keep reading as we go through these two SUVs to figure out which one you should be buying.

2020 Audi Q3 Power & Handling

Under the hood of the Audi Q3 is one standard and powerful engine. Audi is not skimping or cutting corners with this amazing powertrain. You will be able to enjoy this turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which can output 228 horsepower and up to 258 pound-feet of torque. This engine works with an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission, which features manual-shift mode. You also get the added perk of all-wheel drive, no matter the trim level that you end up purchasing. This means you get more traction and can handle poor weather better than the competition.

2020 BMW X1 Power & Handling

Much like the Q3, the BMW X1 comes with one standard engine. The biggest difference here is that all-wheel drive is not standard, this is an option that you have to pay more for. The engine itself is a turbocharged 2.0-liter. You will be able to get around 258 pound-feet of torque and 228 horsepower. To round off this powertrain, you get an eight-speed automatic transmission. As you can tell, there are many similarities here, but the lack of standard all-wheel drive is a big miss with this configuration.

2020 Audi Q3 Features & Design

When it comes to comfort and technology, you will never be let down by what you can find with the Q3. Standard features include a panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, heated leather seats, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. Another available trim, Premium S Line, includes Keyless start and smart key, 19-inch twin-spoke wheels, heated eight-way power seats, a wireless smartphone charger, and an S line exterior appearance package. Added features include a navigation system, park-steering assist, Audi virtual cockpit, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system.

2020 BMW X1 Features & Design

The truth is, the feature selection for the BMW X1 is pretty disappointing. The standard features here include a navigation system, power liftgate, low-speed emergency braking, automatic high beams, and Apple CarPlay. The only difference in the two available trim levels is that the other model comes standard with AWD. As you can tell, for anyone who is looking for true comfort, you better go with the Audi Q3.


It should be obvious by now, but if it isn't, the 2020 Audi Q3 is the SUV that is impossible to beat. Not only do you get standard all-wheel drive with a powerful engine, but you can also experience an interior that is as comfortable as it is tech-heavy.
